Implantable port or port-a-cath

Implantable port or port-a-cath

One of the paramount complications which arise during cancer treatments is the risk of rupturing veins with continuous injections, chemotherapy sessions, IV fluids or blood transfusions. An implantable port or catheter can help immensely in this situation. The implantable port goes under a patient’s chest or upper arm and can prove to be miraculous for patients with low platelet count and those seeking ambulatory chemotherapy.
